Federal judge: St. Cloud State athletics fails to provide equal opportunity to women


August 2, 2019

St. Cloud State University for years has failed to provide equal opportunities for female athletes and must rectify the discriminatory system immediately, U.S. District Judge John Tunheim ruled Thursday.

The judge found St. Cloud State to be out of compliance with Title IX, the federal civil-rights law from 1972 that requires gender equity in public education including athletics. Ten recent members of SCSU’s tennis and Nordic ski teams filed suit over the allocation of athletic resources on behalf of current and future female students.
